Old Hog Barn

Got a project that you are working on that is not a tractor? Maybe a barn to hold your tractors or just fun stuff like woodworking, glass, tools, sheds, gardens, custom implements, etc., this is the place to talk about it.

Old Hog Barn

Postby Eugene » Sat Jul 27, 2019 12:25 pm

36' X 60' hog barn, some where around 70 years old. Used as tractor and equipment storage. Tax assessor has the building listed as no value. General idea is to make the building usable for many more years and to keep it off the tax rolls.

Adding sheet metal to 2 sides and one end. One end already sided. Add some translucent panels to the roof for light. Repair the sill in a couple places and several rafters. No major out of pocket cost, most materials on hand, left over from other projects. Have all the required tools.

Dirtiest part of the repairs will be removing the chicken wire and old straw used as ceiling insulation.

The south side of the barn has a semi flat area about 8 feet wide the length of the barn. Immediately south of the semi flat spot is the hill. Over the years soil from the hill has washed into the semi flat spot and up on the foundation. Took the 2 bottom trailer plow and made two passes. Skid steer to scoop out the loosened soil. Next pass with the plow and it just skidded on the clay. Clay rock hard, 5 foot skid steer bucket wouldn't cut it. Put a 3 foot wide bucket on the skid steer and finally able to cut the clay and reshape to a drainage ditch.

Eugene, sounds like a plan. And that is a pretty good size.

Forgot to add, will remove the ventilation portion of the roof. This portion is about 6" above the roof line. Entire structure was built from native oak. On the west side of the building is a 36' X 36' concrete pad.

Yup. It's good size. Cement floor. Used for mechanical work before we built the current shop.

Big plan. Lot of time involved.

Dale. I don't do photos any more. Getting old, just have a go phone. Use it like one of the hard wired desk phones. Now on my 2nd computer since my digital camera gave out. Refusing to learn any more stuff because it is out dated as soon as I get the new item out of the box.

May be I can get son to take photos, up load to my computer, then down load here. So, do you want photos of me in dirty, torn, worn out work clothes, or after the shower in night clothes?

Removing two small rooms in the hog barn. Called my brother and asked him if he wanted some full dimension, rough sawn oak and black walnut. Some pieces are 12 or more inches wide, 10 to 12 feet long. Told brother that I thought I would have about 200 board feet. Way under estimated the amount. Guessing some where close to 500 board feet. Brother makes boxes and flower/plant containers and sells them at the flea market.

Turns out the roof ventilators are still in place, just need to be closed.

We are making progress. There still is a lot of junk in the hog shed from previous owners. Son says we can park all of the tractors and skid steer in the old hog shed when we emptied out all the junk.

Boy, that's going to be some nice space! :{_}:

Funny thing, our property (20 acres) used to be a hog farm, with two old barns. When we bought it, we had them torn down. Didn't have tractors 20+ years ago. Just think how many cubs it would have fit!!! SIGH!! :lol:

Eugene! I like your shirt: "I don't need your attitude I have one of my own." Kind of sums it up.

You guys be extra careful doing that work. Yesterday and today is supposed to be very hot/humid, so take precautions. You don't have to go about it like you're killin' snakes.

BTW, that rough sawn walnut and oak will work up nice. Hope your brother's tools are sharp; that wood will put his planer and saw blades to the test.

The space is looking good. Will provide some nice storage.

Couple of reasons.
Racoons live in the ceiling.
We drive tractors through the barn, not wanting the straw to catch on fire.
We are going to reside the barn with metal roofing and install translucent panels in portions of the roof.
We need to replace a couple of rafters.
We need to close the ventilators in the roof's peak. Need to get to the peak with ladders and nail the ventilator boards in place.
In a couple of places, need to replace the sill plate with pressure treated lumber.

- Only work in the hog barn a couple hours a day. Today with the high heat index, wife and I quit at 10:30 AM.

In the photo with the two Allis Chalmers, there is a 154 Cub and a log splitter in front of the tractors. In the space behind the tractors, from where the photo was taken, is enough room for more tractors with 2 wheeled trailers attached.

Glad to hear you're taking care of yourself. Forecast has your area with upper 70's for the highs for Thursday-Friday. Humidity will probably be about the same.

Temps here in eastern Missouri haven't been bad due to clouds, but the humidity has been extremely high. Now it looks like it could rain at any time, but all it's doing is raising the humidity up even more.

That's going to make an excellent storage shed, or even shop space! Glad you are re-purposing the building, it's too nice to let it rot down.
